Name: Solar Eclipse
Date: August 21, 2017
Time: 10:00 AM - 1:15 PM MDT
Event Description:
While eclipses occurred in parts of the U.S. in 1979 and 1991, this much-anticipated event will mark the first time a total solar eclipse will be viewable in the wide, clear skies of Wyoming since 1918. The eclipse's path of totality will make its way through the entire central region of the state for nearly 366 miles, providing visitors the opportunity to see it in some of the nation's most stunning landscapes.
"For centuries, eclipses have been noted as one of the most breathtaking sights on earth," said Diane Shober, Executive Director of the Wyoming Office of Tourism. "To have an incredible natural phenomenon such as a total solar eclipse move across our entire state is very exciting for us. With our wide open spaces, normally clear weather and great events that surrounding community leaders are producing, it's no wonder Wyoming encompasses some of the best spots in the country to view the eclipse."
